Ran my first 1/2 marathon!!!

raiderfan16raiderfan16 Member Posts: 10 Member Posts: 10
One of my fitness goals was to motivate myself to exercise. So I went crazy and decided to enter a 1/2 marathon. I finished it, running most of time the first 8 miles and then walking/running the other 5 miles. It was fantastic!! I ran it in Anchorage Alaska! The weather was perfect for running....cold. Anyway..if I can do it, anyone can! Reach for your goals!! You can do it!!!

    thanks guys! I already love this site.....so encouraging. Minnie, I trained with a group called Team in Training. You sign up for a team, get some coaching and guidance and raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. They take you to wonderful places to run your first race. It is a great experience and you are doing a good thing for others!!
